Alicante Freemasons celebrate annual Ladies Night in Benidorm

MORE than 200 Freemasons from every point of the Alicante province assembled in Benidorm for their annual Ladies Night, and enjoyed a grand celebratory dinner that included live entertainment and a big charity raffle.

There are now 28 Freemasons Lodges throughout the region and each holds their own Ladies Night once a year, primarily to thank their wives and partners for their support throughout the year.  Many Masons attend meetings two or three times a week, and their duties often require them to spend a lot of time away from home and most admit they could not do it without the support so freely given by their loved ones.  Also, once a year, the grand Provincial Ladies Night takes place and this one was organised by Provincial Grand Master RWBro Michael Shilan and his lady, Muriel, who is a great support to Freemasonry.

This Ladies Night was held at the Grand Bali Hotel in Benidorm, beginning with a cava and canapé reception ahead of a sumptuous four course dinner.

The toast to the ladies was given in an exemplary manner by the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, WBro Rodney Bignell to which Muriel responded and thanked all the people who had helped in organising the event and to all those that had come along to enjoy the evening.

Entertainment for the evening was supplied by ‘Black Glitter’ and the grand charity raffle was held in support of the El Preventorio Children’s Home in Gandia.  They benefitted from the sum of €1,600.

A great evening was enjoyed by all and finished at 1am by which time everyone had been fed, watered and danced out!
